  1. Wow….this is a nice post and it is very encouraging.
    Have been having problems of registering new domains, but each time I enter it, it will tell me that the domain name is not available thereby giving me options.
    I want to know, this options like, .com.ng, .ng, etc…how good is it compare to .com, because I always believe anything .com.ng is not upto standard. Please you can help me better knowledge on this.
    Thanks

  2. Thank you so much.
    Many people have this question in their mind while starting their website “ What domain extension should I choose for my website: .com or .com.ng ? ”
    Let me share with you some advantages of .com.ng over .com

    1. Rank Better on Google:
    Google searches are heavily influenced by a user’s geographical location, so if you appeal to regional customers, you should choose your country’s extension. In case of Nigeria its .com.ng .

    2. Cost efficient:
    .com.ng is much cheaper than .com.

    3. Better Domain Names:
    All the good names might have already been registered in .com but the competition on .NG ccTLD is much lower. So you have a good chance to grab the domain name of your choice.

    4. Increasing Exchange Rates:
    .com is a foreign TLD & due to the increasing exchange rates the price of .com domain names are increasing. Using .com.ng will contribute to saving your money.

    5. Some other advantages of using .com.ng are:

    • It gives you a Nigerian Identity
    • It helps reaching your targeted Nigerian audience
    • Expanding your Nigerian presence
    • Builds trust in the audience
    • Nevertheless it protects your brand in Nigeria
